2018 Staff Spotlight – Kerry Peterman
Kerry Peterman may be joining us for her first official summer at camp but she’s been coming to North Star for a long time. She’ll join the ranks of 2nd generation NSC folks since her Dad Tom was a camper and staff member, but she’s been coming to Post Camp for years. We didn’t warn her that there isn’t happy hour all summer long.
Kerry, a native of Glencoe, IL is just finishing her freshman year at the University of Iowa. There she’s an Informatics major and is also a member of a university improv group. Kerry plays guitar and is also into art and graphic design. During the summer Kerry will teach on a few program areas while working in the office and helping oversee NSC photography.
